Mitchell & Sons, Blue Spot 7 Year Old, Single Pot Still, 58.7%

My first encounter with Blue Spot was after tasting the MVR 2020 & Knockrath Tree 7 offerings – the depth & complexity of which swamped any delights Blue Spot held.

A chance sample allowed me to revisit this acclaimed single pot still.

Despite the high ABV – rich warming caramels greeted me on the nose.

The palate started off soft, mellow & mouthcoatimg – before the 58.7% strength kicked in with a powerful punch leaving me reeling with touches of spicy oak tannins.

My original appraisal still stands.

Doesn’t grab me.
